    "Russell said she and her husband legally carry handguns, and they had them in the motel room.
    For a moment, she said, it looked like the thief just wanted her husband's briefcase.

    "He came over, grabbed the briefcase, and I thought for a moment he was just going to leave because he had something," Russell said. "Then he turned around and he opened fire. My husband returned fire. And he's a better shot."

    The motel 6 where they were staying is right off I-40, and in the dark the area does not look bad, it just looks like the edge of the city. There is not much that would suggest that it is one of the highest crime areas in the city. Looks can be deceiving.

    Thanks for the post. I remember this lady in the 80's on CNN. She was the first female, I think, with her own timeslot.
    I am so glad she is well.
